1959 Höfner President 500/5 bass

Posted on 13/11/2012 by ozzy in Basses

The 1959 Höfner President 500/5 was Roger's first (pre-Floyd era) bass he played around 1964-65.

Today, Höfner manufactures the vintage version of the 500/5 President bass, inspired by the Höfner models of the 1950s and 60s (as played e.g. by Stuart Sutcliffe in the early days of The Beatles). With a fully hollow 16,5" wide body and fitted with close spaced original Höfner 'Black Bar' pick-ups, and with the Höfner control panel to ensure a sixties style sound.
